Easter Gardens Galore

We are usually treated to a wonderful Easter Garden built under the Altar, but as we can’t get into Church this year, we decided to create our own gardens at home instead…
So the good folk at Christ Church, Waltham Cross have been very busy creating Easter Gardens with whatever they have to hand in their homes and gardens – no popping out to the Garden Centre over the Bank Holiday Weekend!
As well as the ‘traditional’ plant based creations, we have a hand drawn garden complete with Passover moon, a wonderful ‘Lego’ garden, and a magnificent Easter Garden Cake by one of our star bakers… it’s a shame the lockdown means we can’t all have a slice…

Church at the moment

NEWS!

We have resumed our normal service times (10am on the first Sunday of the month and 9.15 on the rest). Weddings, Christenings and Funerals can now take place in church. We are exempt from the ‘rule of 6’, but we are not allowed to ‘mingle’ (!) Because of social distancing, numbers are limited. Let the vicar know if you’re coming to reserve a place.

Wearing of face coverings is now mandatory in church unless you are exempt. CofE guidance says that those who are leading services, and those who assist them (for instance by reading, preaching, or leading prayer) do not need to wear them whilst doing so (although we will, of course, wear masks for the distribution of Communion).

Singing is not allowed at the moment and we are not running Junior Church. In addition, we maintain 2m social distancing and a one way system of movement, we have hand sanitising stations throughout church and the building is sanitised after each service. We think church is a very safe place to be.

We are live streaming our services to our Facebook page (Christ Church LEP) for those who cannot yet come to church.

The Vicar is saying morning and evening prayer in church as normal, so if you would like us to pray for you, or if you just need to speak to someone, let us know using the contact form (here)

We will continue to post services and prayer resources on our Facebook page which you can find here:

and our shared documents page here https://www.facebook.com/groups/430355164053438/

Please also look at our Donations page in the menu…. closed churches means our source of income has been severely reduced as we are not supported financially by the Government or the Church of England.

We now have text giving: to donate to Christ Church, text 2020CHURCH (amount) to 70085 (so, for example, to give £5, text 2020CHURCH 5 to 70085). Please use caps and leave a space between church and the number.

Welcome

Welcome to Christ Church!

We recognise the ministry of both men and women as deacons, priests and bishops.

Everyone is welcome here and you don’t have to be a member of our church to come to any of our services – just turn up!
